Food Brokers and Food Sales Reps

The Food Service Industry

As a food service distributor or food broker, your goal is to create relationships with companies that need your product, and maximize the efficiency of your product delivery by intelligently expanding your reach and saturating markets. Using independent food service brokers and outside food service sales reps can help you succeed at meeting your goals more quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively.

How do you find a a food service broker or outside food sales representative that matches your needs as a food services distributor or broker? Read our food services sales rep recruiting process tips below.

A Well Built-Out Territory

One of the most important advantages of any commission-only outside sales rep is that you can tap into a territory they have already built out with other, often complimentary product lines. Leave the pain of cold-calling as a business owner behind, and get your product in front of new faces faster. Figure out what territories you want to cover, and interview your potential food service broker about their existing lines. If they already sell organic food to wholesale or retail food service companies, they may be perfect for your biodegradable coffee cups. Your food services sales representatives will be looking for these connections, too, in order to maximize their own commissions.

Background in Food Services Brokering

It takes time to build expertise and relationships in a particular industry, and food services is no exception. The best commission-only food service brokers will have years of experience in the food services industry, and potentially a background in restaurant management, nutrition, or science, depending on the type of product you are selling. Presenting the advantages of your product can be done with more authority and zest by someone who is really knowledgeable about it. If you are selling something eco-friendly, for example, hiring someone with a passion for organic foods will really pay off.

Patience with the Sales Cycle

A good outside food sales rep or food service broker is very outgoing, and very patient, because it can take time for a restaurant, wholesale or retail food store or commercial establishment to switch such a huge and vital portion of its business to you. Food Service sales reps need to be as talented at making a human connection as they do at going over the math that makes your product superior with business owners or COOs. The ability to prove how your food distributor or foodservice broker business will provide better product quality and reliability than others is key to your success.
